Case ID:





Cold dry night, no moon.

Mrs Dorothy Cale saw a mysterious light while she was in a car near Walton West (south of Broad Haven). She was travelling with her 10-year-old son in a friend's car, with her friend, a woman, who was driving. One other woman was also in the car.

As they drove along the road between Walton West and Rosepool - a long lonely road - there appeared, very suddenly, a very bright flashing light above the left hand hedge. They said the intense light was about 15-20 feet in the air and appeared to be on top of an object which was largely hidden by the hedge.

It was vaguely done-shaped. It flashed, and as it flashed there seemed to be a zig-zag nucleus rather like an electric bulb filament. It gave a yellowish-white light was so bright that it lit up the whole of the surrounding area and the sky above it.

The driver stopped suddenly thinking they were going to run into something, but after it flashed four times it then disappeared. During the short time in which it was observed, the witnesses had the impression it was the top of something obscured by the hedge, which at this point was quite high.

The size of the flashing object was estimated at about 5 or 6 feet across and 3 feet high.
